So let’s start this post out with a little shout out to my dad.  He reads my blog all the time.  My dad and I have the same taste in movies for the most part.  I love going to the movies with him when I’m in Arizona.  For those of you fans around the world who don’t know, I am a student at BYU in Utah so I don’t see my family all that often. Whenever I talk to my dad on the phone we talk about my blog.  Let’s just say he is my biggest supporter and also one of my biggest critics.

Last phone conversation with my dad

Justin-“Hi dad”
Dad-“Hello son”
Justin-“So you still read my blog dad?”
Dad-“I love reading your blog, but son you need to give more reasoning and analysis of what you thought about the movie.  Some of your reviews are a little weak.  But my advice should be a compliment because this means that I want to read more in each of your posts.”

So, I actually get his point.  Here I am, 194 words into this post and I still have not said anything about the movie Unknown.  But I feel like that’s ok because I feel like I am one of the most entertaining people on this earth and so you should enjoy every word that I type.  I am not a professional movie critic by any means.  I am a professional entertainer. Ok, so I’m not a professional entertainer either, but I’m funny and I see movies so I like to write about them.  There are a bazillion (wow, Word didn’t even say I needed to spell check this word. Bazillion is a word???) other movie critic sites, so if you feel that I didn’t give enough information about the movie please check out other sites too. I give you permission.

But I think I will try to be a little bit better in giving my opinion about the movie instead of saying, “yeah, it was dumb. Bye.”

So let’s talk about Unknown now.

If you want to enjoy this movie, do not go in with Taken expectations at all. This movie is nothing like Taken and if you think it will be like Taken, you will hate this movie.  Well, at least that was the case for me.

The previews show that this movie is about a man, played by Liam Neeson, who is unrecognized by everyone after a car accident in a taxi.  What made the previews so intriguing was that even his own wife did not recognize him.  The premise sounded promising enough to me.

Too bad it was LAME.

So after the car accident in the taxi, we watch Liam Neeson and the taxi driver, played by Diane Kruger, trying to figure out the mystery behind his identity loss.  Diane Kruger is the lady from National Treasure, in case you didn’t know.

So yeah, they go around and around trying to solve the big mystery.  They solve the mystery at the end and it is just plain silly.  It was such a weak ending and pretty much had me, movie crazy Justin, regretting spending the money on such a lamesauce movie.

Alright, but you don’t have to take my word for it.

I have talked to many people who have liked it.

A lot of people have put on my Facebook page that they enjoyed it so maybe it just wasn’t for me.

You can always check out to get a more general consensus on films.  I give every movie a chance regardless of what it says on rottentomatoes.

But in my opinion, I’d just wait for the dollar theaters on this one. Or Redbox. Or when you find it at a garage sale later in your life.

I Am Number Four.

Ok, so technically Alex Pettyfer is Number Four, so I am not number four. But the movie is called I Am Number Four, not to be confused with the fact that I am not number four. Still reading? Awesome.

There are three good names attached to this movie.
Name number one is director D.J. Caruso, the director of Disturbia.
Name number two is Michael Bay, the director of Transformers who is the producer for I Am Number Four.

Name number three is Dianna Agron. who plays the cheerleader on Glee. Enough said.

 So the trailer to this movie looked pretty good. It was the first movie of 2011 that I was really excited to see.  As soon as reviews started popping up today, I noticed that many people were comparing it to Twilight.  I was hesitant to see this movie because we all know that Twilight is a sad excuse for a movie/book.


Man, all you Twilight lovers are gonna hate me now! Sorry. Just being honest.

For those of you who don’t know, I Am Number Four is about nine aliens who are being hunted on earth by psycho, bad aliens.  These nine good aliens are all numbered and are killed sequentially.  So in the previews we learn that One, Two, and Three are dead and the psycho, bad aliens are after Number Four.  Number Four moves around the country in order to keep his identity hidden from others.  He does a pretty good job keeping cover, until of course he falls in L-O-V-E.

So I understand the Twilight comparisons. We see a human girl fall in love with supernatural man.  Man must save world from destruction of evil aliens. However, one thing that I Am Number Four has going for it is that their “Bella” is a lot better looking.

I didn’t think that the acting was all that great, and I was pretty bored the first hour of the movie.  I really liked the last hour of the movie though.  You could definitely see elements of Disturbia and Transformers and the movie definitely ended with a bang. 

I can’t wait till I Am Number Five. However, for the sequel I recommend more fighting, and less Twilight. 

If you guys are WAY into movies like I am you may enjoy this one.  However, if you are a rare movie goer, save your movie experience for another movie and wait to see this one in the dollars.

Justin Bieber is living my life.

Ok, not in a creepy “I-wish-fifteen-year-old-girls-would-hit-on-me” kind of way.  But in a “he-is-so-famous” kind of way. 

Yes y’all, I went and saw the Bieber movie tonight. When I walked up to the ticket counter all I had to say was, “The Justin Bieber movie please.” And ca-ching! I didn’t even have to say Never Say Never. Are you kidding me? That never happens. I have never walked up to a ticket counter and said, “The Angelina Jolie movie please” and had people know what I was talking about. I am telling you. This is Bieber’s world, and we are all just living in it.

Love him or hate him, Justin Bieber has got some serious talent. The movie starts off by showing a lot of home video of his childhood. He started singing and playing the drums the moment he was born.  Ok, so maybe it was a little while after he was born, but he was rocking out at a young age.

The movie was filled with interviews with family, friends, and other people who have been involved in Justin’s progress.  The movie flashed back and forth between interviews and the concert he performed at Madison Square Garden.  Ok, here is a spoiler, but this just shocked me. They sold out Madison Square Garden in 22 minutes. That is just insane. Oh and keep in mind that he sold out after being in the spotlight for only about a year. INSANE!

Yeah, so I won’t see this again.  And half of you reading this won’t go see it, but it was a good movie. And heck, it was rated-G. How many rated-G movies come out these days? All in all it was a good movie. 

I am so gonna be famous some day. I’m pumped. My name is Justin. So I’m halfway there.

“Never” you say?

Never. Say. Never.

The Fairest of Them ALLLLL

When you think "the fairest of them ALL" who do you think of?

Katy Perry?

Or maybe.....

 Kristen Stewart?

WHAT?! Heeeeeeeck no.

Well, word on the street is that our sweet Bella has been offered to play the role of Snow White in the upcoming movie Snow White and the Huntsman.

So correct me if I'm wrong, but in the Twilight books, Bella(played by KStew) is described as being an average girl.  That is why so many people love the Twilight books because she is a normal, teenage girl.  (But if you ask me there is nothing normal about a love triangle between a werewolf, a vampire and a human being.)

The point is this.  Kristen, you do NOT have my blessing if and when you accept the role to play Snow White.

No offense(ok, a little offense) but KStew you are not exactly the fairest of them all.

P.S. if KStew is trademarked or something, my bad.

The Roommate

pic here
I usually watch movies for you guys.  I know that you stay awake late into the night, refreshing your web browser just hoping, praying that I have posted something new and exciting and entertaining.  For that, I thank you.  I will continue to go to movies to please my hundreds of fans around the world.

January didn’t have any good movies.

February is looking a little more promising.  This last weekend I was seriously dying because I have not been to the movies in such a long time. Ok, it’s probably been three weeks. But movies are my water. Without movies, what would life be worth living for? Oh, silly me, if there were no movies, there would always be TV. Ok. Cool.


I saw The Roommate.  I’m just gonna pretend like I didn’t see this movie.

But seriously the only reason I watched this movie is because my sister is moving away for college next semester and I wanted to see a worst-case scenario situation that she could encounter.

Lex, go see this movie. You will never move out.

I love scary movies. However, this was such a poor excuse for a scary movie.  It felt like a made-for-TV movie.  I mean, I’ve seen some good made-for-TV movies, but this was even worse than that.  I just didn’t see how it was even eligible to be put up on the big screen.  I mean, I could make a movie better than The Roommate.  Heck, they will probably be putting up Justin Bieber movies soon. That’ll be the day.

This was one of the dumbest movies I have ever seen.  The only entertaining part was thinking of my past and current roommates and trying to figure out which ones were maybe psychopaths.  I think I have had a good group of roommates so far.  Except for that one…. just kidding roommate who is reading this post right now. You are cool.

Just don’t go see this movie. It’s not worth the time or energy.  Psycho roommate moves in with normal roommate. You know the rest.


And no I didn't forget my "cool" rating system. I purposely left it out cuz I'm not gonna waste my time being creative when these filmmakers didn't have to be creative with their stupid movie.
